Over the last few decades, segregation, collection and recycling of waste has become an increasing environmental concern in Delhi and in other parts of the country too.
As a part of our initiative on the environment, IndiGo has joined hands with Chintan to focus on cleaning a neglected stretch of 5 km of the railway line between Palam and Shahbad Mohamadpur in New Delhi and also create a sustainable practice of waste management in the area. This area has accumulated wastes over the years and is a threat to the environment as well as the health of the community living around it.
The key objectives of the project include:
So far, this program is being implemented to create awareness and develop p waste segregation and composting practices in 520 households in the area, which is administered by South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC).
